governor romney's rationale in this race one line of the obama argument, i am the guy you know. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i've made, you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change, but you know that i say what i mean and i mean what i say. you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. and you know i fight for working families every single day as hard as i know how. >> we know what this president believes. but governor romney -- >> with these guys, it all depends on who you're talking to, where you are, what time of day it is, what state you're in, what the polls say. how the weather is. it always, always depends, everything depends. i never met more two guys who everything depends more on. i don't know what they are for, ladies and gentlemen. >> mr. romney made changes, too, depending on the weather, but not this president. this week president obama has shown why he is above the man who wants his job and he's made mr. romney seem downright laughable on the issue. >> he promised to be a post pa
obama and governor romney are in the buckeye state as if the whole race may depend on it. guess what? it probably does. we'll go live to the site of the president's event this morning near columbus. there are more than just two guys running for office. house republicans could actually pick up a few seats on tuesday. we'll talk to the gop's man in charge of holding on to the house and the guy who predicted this could happen more than two years ago. november 2, 2012. this is the daily rundown. i'm chuck todd. let's get to my first read of the morning. four days after one of the worst storms ever to hit the country residents are reeling from sandy's impact. according to an early estimate from ploody's analytic the damage will approach $50 billion including property damage and loss of economic aft ty. more than 3.5 home owners and businesses are facing a day without power. the good news the number keeps coming down but there are still millions without power and then new york, staten island where at least 90 people were killed. the situation is particularly grim and residents are still co
administrati administration, whether it's president obama or governor romney, is we treat it as a national problem and we have huge varieties between states and education levels and gender. >> let's talk about the psyc psychology of it. are people looking at the numbers and measures how they feel? whatever the case, they're measures how they feel at their home right now. >> absolutely. it's a good media story to talk about the number that changes month to month. oh, my god the unemployment rate is 7.9%. do i have a job that pays enough? do i have several part-time jobs? will i find one if i lose one? that's what matters at an individual level. >> we know how that factor into who the public will vote for on tuesday. who makes me feel more comfortable about my future. >> what's odd about this is you think those areas hurting the most would be most likely to blame washington and president obama. they're most likely to vote democratic. people who do not have jobs who are struggling and not earning sufficient income seem much more likely to gravitate toward a party with a safety net. people who
. >> reporter: good morning to you, jenna. tomorrow both president obama and governor romney will be in or around columbus, ohio. a testament to how important the state is. he is here in virginia was built on a site of the old meadow farms where the great secretariat was born. i will help you make your own analogis. whoever wins the commonwealth will win it by a nose. the governor pressing hard on economy today. "fox news poll" showing him with a nine point ad vage over the president. with mr. obama on the campaign trail governor romney is sharpening the contrast with the president who is best to bring back prosperity for the nation. >> do you want the four more years like the last four years? >> no!. >> you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? >> no!. >> you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> no!. >> you want four more years of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> no!. >> reporter: governor romney drawing the sharp contrasts with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulati
and for the people of our state. >> that's new jersey governor chris christy praising president obama and eliciting howls of outrage from the gop. after all, christie's their hero. he's their guy. he's the one that a lot of them actually wanted to be the nominee. mitt romney had chris christie give the speech at the keynote convention. >> i have behind me a man who is an american hero. he's a real hero in republican circles because he's been forthright. we agree on a whole host of issues. i think we're pretty sympathetic on the issues that matter today. >> hmm. i wonder if romney would still say that he's sympathetic on the issue of president obama. republicans can't accept the idea that one of their favorite republicans would actually work with the president to help americans in need and so it's getting ugly. >> new jersey governor chris christie has decided to play the role of a greek column today for president obama. chris christie's the only republican -- not just praising obama. i mean, it's -- it's -- let me just put it this way. is it wrong for one man to love another man? but that man love
's happened to us. >> governor romney is cautiously venturing back on to the campaign trail. president obama still tied up with dealing with the storm. >> two of the three major airports serving the new york area reopened. laguardia remains a flooded mess. >> uh-oh. uh-oh. >> we will reset halloween by executive order. my power knows no bounds. >> is that one of those governor chris christie fleece zip-ups. >> power to your house, nonexistent. that means darkness and candles and whining children. >> on "cbs this morning." >> people had no e-mail, facebook, twitter or instagram or as aol users put it, welcome to the party. >>> welcome to cbs this morning. as you wake up on the west coast, the remains of superstorm sandy are still being felt as far as wisconsin, but it's nothing like the damage here in the northeast. the death toll this morning is at least 57. 22 of them in new york city alone. >> around 6.8 million utility customers are still without power in 16 states and washington, d.c. in hard-hit lower manhattan, power will not be fully restored until the weekend at the earliest. however
concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. >> president obama and new jersey governor chris christie standing together side by side surveying the damage from hurricane sandy. they have gone from adversaries to praising each other. my guest michael moore. we did cover the rockaway blaze in the midnight show on monday night in to tuesday morning. i was anchoring that toward the end. we were one of the first networks to get it on the air. >> but two or three hours after it happened. my point is, can you imagine if 110 homes were burning right now in los angeles? >> sure. >> it would be another three hours we heard about it. >> no. but you have to take it in the context of everything else going on in new york. >> my point is that everything going on was putting reporters in three feet of water and seeing how far they blow. and that is not news. >> i don't agree with that. >> we already covered that. >> this is an interesting debate. but if a 14 foot surge comes over in lower manhattan -- >> here it comes, whoa! that's it. why do you keep going back to ali velshi i
that slammed into the northeast. many of the travel plans that president obama and governor romney had intended to make, well, it resulted in something of a political impact. let's talk about it now with a couple of people who have watched these campaigns. mary katharine ham is the editor-at-large of hotair.com. also a fox news contributor. simon rosenberg, the president and founder of the new democrat network. a former clinton campaign advisor. you heard governor romney there in florida. florida has had its share of misery. i was living there when hurricane andrew hit. how do you conduct a political campaign in this environment, simon, you know, when so many people are hurting, have no power, the last thing they want to hear or on television on the radio is another attacked a? >> well i think there, the president is being the president. i mean he's out, obviously at red cross and at fema and he is clearly leading the recovery effort right now. i think he has a little bit of a political advantage over mitt romney in the sense that mitt romney is just a candidate trying to talk about what is goi
. president obama and governor romney fighting it out for every last vote, especially in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack obama. in a few minutes, he will be on this show live and exclus
was the focus of president obama's first address here in ohio. again on this riff that you can't trust governor romney. you look at what he said in the past, you look at what he's saying now, and the two things just don't add up. one of the things he was pointing to was this recent auto bailout ad that governor romney's campaign put out in which he suggests chrysler has sold jeeps to the italians and now want to start selling in china. the obama administration says, whoa, we're not moving jobs to china, governor romney's saying, yes, but for every job created in china, that's a job not created here in the united states. president obama firmly on this tack of governor romney has got a big problem in ohio with voters here. here's what he said. >> i understand that governor romney's had a tough time here in ohio because he was against saving the auto industry, and it's hard to run away from that position when you're on videotape saying the words let detroit go bankrupt. [cheers and applause] but i know, you know, we're close to an election. but this isn't a game. >> reporter: you know, one thing t
a dozen flights of stairs to get them out. president obama and new jersey governor chris christie toured damaged areas of new jersey yesterday. the two put political differences aside to do what is right for victims of superstorm sandy. they walked through one of the hardest hit neighborhoods and visited a shelter. the federal communications you're going to be ok. he sprang into action immediately to help get us those things. it has been a great working relationship. >> president obama said his top priority is to get car restored. the federal communications commission says wireless service is improving in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. but serious outages remain in hard-hit areas like new jersey and new york. where cell phone users crowded around power strips yesterday to charge their phones. sandy's blow to mobile phone sites from virgina to massachusetts gives fresh impetus for federal requirements that wireless networks have backup power systems. phone companies went to court and blocked backup power rules proposed after hurricane katrina. a fomer f-c-c executive tells bloomberg
liking from piles of rubble that sparked several fires. president obama accompanied new jersey governor chris christie for an up close look at the damage. an entire neighborhood washed away. >> you are going to be okay. you are safe. what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> reporter: the iconic boardwalk is in ruins. and thousand of people are still trapped in hoboken. >> it's scary. you don't know how long you're going to be stuck here. >> reporter: in new york there is also severe damage. it is remarkable no one died here at breezy point where residents returned to salvage anything they could. >> it's devastating. it's something like you never saw before. it's hard to believe. >> reporter: lights are slowly coming back on in lower manhattan. and work continues to restore other areas. the national guard was called in to help evacuate hundreds of patients at new york's belleview hospital, one of the largest trauma centers in the nation. conditions have been
of governor romney, president obama will probably say, i haven't gotten his official response, he will probably say the economy is expanding. it is going in the right direction. we need more time for number of new jobs we really need but we're going in the right direction. governor romney will almost certainly respond we're not growing fast enough. we could do a whole lot better without going into all this debt. bill: stuart, thank you. the closing argument for governor romney happens this afternoon. we'll show you which state he is making that in. it will be very interesting to many. thank you, stuart. see you 9:20 on fbn. you got it. martha. martha: let's get another look at this jobs picture. there is combination of 23 million americans who are either unemployed right now or what we call underemployed. more than 3.5 million of those folks have been unemployed a year or more. it taking average for 40.2 weeks for someone unemployed to find a job. that is a very long time. i don't have to tell any folks that are in that situation that is painful. here is another look at it, anothe
. go to cymbalta.com to learn about a free trial offer. >>shepard: a day after governor romney returned to the campaign trail after super storm sandy president obama has started what the team calls closing arguments. the president is embarking on a marathon trip across several key battleground states started shaking hands with supporters in green bay and then to las vegas and then colorado and then stopping in columbus, ohio. governor romney, he is focusing on virginia which could be a toss up. john roberts is with us following the governor romney campaign and ed henry is covering the president's campaign, and the president will speak in an hour, is that right? >>reporter: that is right. he was in business earlier, flashing a new wardrobe wearing a bomber jacket from air force one and a new message, the aides say that while he has been negative on governor romney and days ahead,, he will be more talking about what he would do in a second term. take a listen. >> we made real progress the past four years. but wisconsin, we know our work is not done yet. as long as there is a single americ
in virginia. with president obama back out on the campaign trail, governor romney went at him directly again today attacking him on something the president said earlier this week to grow the economy he could consider creating a department of business and appoints a secretary to head it. governor romney saw that as another example of the president wanting to grow government and put more bureaucrats in charge. >> he came up with an idea to create a department of business. i don't think another cabinet chair is going to create the jobs that america needs. i am entitled to make sure we have a president that understands business rather than trying to hire someone in the cabinet who has the background. >>reporter: governor romney has a nine-point advantage over president obama on who can best handle the economy and he is trying to work that on the campaign trail for all it is worth. >>shepard: what is the word on romney's closing argument? >>guest: this is interesting he has now fully co-opted president obama moves mantra of "change" not so were about hope because necessity say hope is not a strat
obama got a first-hand look at sandy's destruction in new jersey today. governor chris christie certainly welcomed him with open arms. not so for new york city mayor bloomberg. he told the president not to come here. maybe for the first time ever i actually agree with the mayor. it is bad enough trying to get around right now. look at this! this is the traffic outside right now. look that!? what a nightmare! it's horrible! without a presidential motorcade blocking off a whole section of the city. look at that. that is the worst thing i've ever seen. here to disagree with me is very brave chicago you would alderman joe marino. welcome back. >> i have to be brave to disagree with you. melissa: i think so. especially on this topic, when you look at the gridlock that we just showed our whole audience who maybe isn't familiar, look at that! i'm never getting home tonight. i'm supposed to go trick-or-treat. it is never going to happen. the mayor said, quote, i love this, we would love to have him but we have lots of things to do. you think that is rude? >> sure. no, look. it would be
. president obama will be in new jersey touring the storm damage with governor christie. >>> welcome back. president obama will be in new jersey touring the storm damage with governor christie. >> the election is less than a week away. and sandy has blown both candidates off course. here is jonathan karl. >> reporter: mitt romney transformed the planned ohio rally into a bid to support relief efforts. >> we won't be able to solve all the problems with our efforts this morning. one of the things i learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> reporter: it has all the trappings of a traditional campaign event, stage, big american flag, campaign music, lots of romney supporters. but you also have over here canned goods and supplies that people have brought for victims of the storm. the storm put romney in a bind. while the president can lead relief efforts -- >> this is something heartbreaking for the nation. >> reporter: there's not much for romney to do beyond encouraging supporters to pitch in. with fema working overtime, democrats are hammering him for what he said at a debate w
, president obama surveyed the damage along a nearly 60-mile stretch of the jersey shore with governor chris christie. >> we are here for you. and we will not forget, we will follow up to make sure that you get all of the help that you need, until you have rebuilt. >> reporter: obama and christie are a very unlikely paring with less than a week un,000 titil e day. the blunt, brash, republican governor one of mitt romney's most staunch supporters. with his state facing historic devastation and massive rebuilding, christie welcomed the president's help. >> he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. this its our sixth conversation since the weekend. and, it's, it's been a great working relationship. >> reporter: in such a tight race, romney couldn't afford to losenother day on the campaig trail. he was in florida, a state that is essentially a must win for him. romney set aside his usual attacks and struck a subdued optimistic tone. >> this is a turning point in american history. >> reporter: only fleeting reference to the president. >> it is time to take a new path of
now to talk about this is obama surrogate and former pennsylvania governor ed rendell. sir, it's great to have you here. as we look at the latest polling out of pennsylvania showing mitt romney within striking distance, just four points separating the two candidates, 49% to 45%, so within the margin of error here, a $1.2 million pennsylvania ad by the romney camp, should the president be concerned? >> well, you're always concerned in elections. when i ran for election as mayor, i got 81% of the vote, i was concerned. that's number one. but number two, this is a sign that the romney folks know that ohio is gone and the only path to the electoral map is to expand it and get a pennsylvania or a minnesota or a michigan. and so it's really a hail mary pass. the polls are between four and six and you don't make that up in a week of television. if mitt romney had started in pennsylvania right after his first debate with that great performance, it might have made a race here, but it's too late. they have got a lot of money so they have got no reason not to low the hail mary pass but it's not g
getting darker and darker and darker. president obama and governor romney abandoning campaign trails today and tomorrow. here now, steve moore. steve, we broke news earlier this hour that the labor department was going to go ahead with those numbers, with the unemployment number on friday. that was a big deal in the big question that we had earlier. people are not at work so it seems clear they could delay it, but, of course, people would be wondering that is a little too convenient with election on tuesday. the most important survey of all, in terms of the selection, a week from tuesday, is that survey of unemployment that comes out on friday. the president obama gets a good number, it will be a huge lift for him. if we go back to 8% unemployment, which is very possible, then, you know, that really throws the momentum in the last weekend to met robbie. do not forget, remember the 2005 election -- ashley: we are pretty seeing some disruption and certainly the storm is big enough, we have seen the campaign, both campaigns knocking back their schedule, canceling events. who wins? >> that is
the right to vote. the obama campaign thanks the republican governor when he did that and then with a significant boost from early voting, democrat barack obama won the state of florida and he won the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor, governor rick scott, decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expand opportunities for voting the way florida's two previous republican governors had done, the new one, republican governor rick scott, decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. tah-dah! long, long, long lines for early voting in polling places across florida. except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures like this from voters who live in florida emp since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. more. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the
where president obama and governor romney remain in statistical dead heat. "washington post/abc news poll", showing 49% support governor romney and 48% to the president. so close at this time. sean spicer communications director from the rnc coming to us every monday as he has for last couple weeks. nice to have you back. >> thanks, jenna. jenna: on a day like this public safety is paramount. we want to keep that in mind but we can't forget there is an election taking place in little more than a week. has the sudden appearance of this storm affected your strategy in any way? >> no, it hasn't affected the strategy but i think our first and foremost goal of the safety of those near or in the path of sandy. governor romney canceled some events in virginia, particularly because he didn't want to be in the way of first-responders and those who may need help after sandy goes through. we have utilized our victory centers in north carolina, virginia, pennsylvania, new hampshire to accept donations for people who might be affected. he is out there in ohio, wisconsin, iowa today. we're keeping
, president obama. he is in atlantic city with all people, governor christina arrangioty who a -- chris christie was a week ago, lambasting the president. this week they're trying to fix up the situation. they're at a marina in atlantic city. the marinas were hit hard. you've seen pictures of boats all over the place, the president and chris christie is being introduced to various people at the marina. as soon as the president begins to speak with chris christie we'll take that live. >>> we are less than a week away from the election. despite the uncertainty ahead we have someone who says now is the perfect time for investors to get into the market. we have the ceo of janus capital group. he joins us in a fox business exclusive. unless people think you're picayune about your investments, you have $158 billion under management. so you're dealing with a lot of cash here. this year we had a tremendous run-up in the markets. we talked to the chief of nasdaq. they have had a 20% gain. other indexes have had great gains. very low volume the retail investor is afraid of getting into the market
from the nevada governor while the obama campaign features a high-profile republican. >> housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry. the actions he's taken from protecting us from terrorism has been very, very solid. so i think we ought to keep on the track that we are on. >> over the past four years, nevada's faced extraordinary challenges. our friends and neighbors have struggled, but president obama's policies haven't helped. they've hurt us. and they're holding us back. we can do better. mitt romney's plan for a stronger middle class will create jobs right here in nevada. >> let's bring in ad guru bob gardner. great to see you. good morning. >> good morning. nice to be with you. >> you've been critical of the ads we've stheen election cycle. let me get your quick analysis of the two we just saw. >> i don't think endorsements matter that much. the powell ad, colin powell has a lot of credibility. he's been all kinds of things in the government. he was a bush guy. so i think that helps a little bit. having the governor of nevada, you know, that's kind
of florida today while president obama holds off until tomorrow. he is meeting with the jersey governor chris christie to tour the damage such in the wake of the storm. the columnist of the national -- national review and executive director of public knows. i'm going to start with you. i watched the press conference with chris christie and the president. let me tell you, is chris christie the governor who was supporting mitt romney or not? , a little confused. >> well, remember that he is running for reelection in 2013 in new jersey, which has not voted for republican for president in over 20 years. so it's good politics for him, and, frankly, so far he is very pleased with of the federal government has been responding to his requests for aid and assistance. 62 percent of new jersey, i lived in new jersey, is without power. that is a lot of angry potential voters if he does not get something done. so i think he is putting policy and his own politics temporarily ahead of mitt romney's. gerri: fascinating to watch, and i could not help but think maybe romney will have some kind of response down
%. president obama will campaign in ohio today. republican challenger romney will be in wisconsin. governor romney was in virginia yesterday and president obama will return to northern virginia tomorrow for a campaign stop. later this morning both camps will be watching the latest jobs report. if it's the last one before the election. >>> time now for the morning line. the redskins are rocking a different look this weekend. they will wear their 1937 throwback jerseys on sunday when they take on the panthers. that's not why everyone is buzzing -- that's not what everyone is buzzing about this weekend for the game. i like those uniforms by the way. the big battle is two highs man trophy quarterbacks. good morning. how are you doing? >> good morning. >> first of all i want to talk about those uniforms. they are nice compareed to what we saw last week on pittsburgh. >> the uniforms look the same, the players don't. >> the guys on the left aren't showing up against the panthers. then the redskins are in real trouble. >> so we've got cam newton versus rg 3 essentially this weekend. what can we ex
's phone calls in 15 minutes. >> i cannot thank the president enough. >> governor christie has been aggressive. >> is it wrong for one man to love another man? >> sandy could wind up being the october surprise. >> before obama got into the smithsonian couldn't mention global warming. heat, melting ice was just a theory. >> governor romney says he believes in climate change but he's not sure manmade changes are the reason. >> president obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans. >> i believe scientists. >> it was a monster storm. >> you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> michael brown, in charge of fema, is criticizing president obama. >> brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. >> brown would have said more but he was busy responding to katrina. >> garbage, crap, and nonsense. >> you're watching fox. you're hearing about a state department, the cia does nothing. >> you are misleading the american people. >> at least we don't live in swing state hell. >> jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. >>
to have an impact? because you've got, of course, governor christie out there just praising president obama. there haven't been major complaints of resources not getting there. it is all surrounds around the power. the approval rating of the president right now is the country thinks he's doing a good job with sandy. will this play in the election? >> sure, it goes to the whole question of the character and quality of presidential leadership. romney found that out in the second debate when he went after the president on libya, got slapped down, got corrected by candy crowley, and the president has a big advantage there. the question is deeper. the question is is this guy up to the crises we face as a nation? we saw barack obama in last week respond in exactly the way americans want him to respond, and who would have thought that chris christie would be the october surprise? that this guy would -- >> october political surprise. >> yeah. he would be the october political surprise, that he would stand up and it's true, and say the president has been incredible, he's been on the phone ever
that even mayor bloomberg has somewhat endorsed president obama, and as you just mentioned, i mean we've seen sort of a bromance, right, between governor krit tee who has been such a supporter of romney and now barack obama. i mean he has been ee fusive in his praise of the president. what is your sense as to what effect that may have on this election? >> mitt romney has been trying for the longest time to be a bipartisan, even post-partisan leader, and mitt romney is now seeing barack obama play that role in real life. chris christie to go out of his way in praising president obama and then mayor bloomberg's endorsement. mayor bloomberg epitomizes the idea of someone beyond party labels. so for him to come off the sidelines now and cite president obama on his position on climate change and endorsing his candidacy, i don't think there are a lot of swing voters waiting around to see where the mayor of new york comes down on the race but reinforces the concept of president obama as someone who is able to cross party lines and get things down and be forward looking in terms of his agenda
john roberts live in kettering, ohio. >> both governor romney, congressman ryan, president obama and the vice president off the road. this was supposed to be a campaign event. they turned it into a relief effort. people were asked as the private admission bring some canned goods, dry goods, water, something like that. a lot of people got that message and showed up. they are collecting quite a few supplies. a lot of people didn't get that message, though, and really came here kind of empty handed. maybe they were still expecting some kind of a campaign event. no formal remarks though governor romney did stand up in front of the crowd, thanked them very much for coming down and said this is a time for the nation to come together to help those in harm's way. here is what the governor said. >> some went to the grocery store i see and purchased some thins that these families will need, and i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit, the american way. we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning, though a lot of people will still be lookin
